The given equation can be re-written as A 2 + 2A = 2I. Hence A(A +2I) = (A+2I)A = 2I;andsoAQ = QA = I, whereQ = ~(A+2I) = I+~A. A. Further to this example, it should be explained that, when A is a matrix in F n x m any matrix expressible in the form (XrAr + (Xr_1Ar-1 + ... + (X2A2 + (Xl A + (XoIn (where each (Xi E F) is described as a polynomial in A. Because any two powers of A commute, it can be seen that any two polynomials in A commute. The generalization of the above worked example is that if 0 can be expressed as a polynomial in A with the coefficient of I nonzero, then A is nonsingular and A -1 is expressible as a polynomial in A.

3 The diagonal matrix D = diag «(Xl' (X2' ... ' (X,,) is nonsingular if and only if all of (Xl' (X2' ... ' (X. are nonzero; and when all of (Xl> (X2' ... ' (X. are nonzero, D- 1 = diag(I/(X1' 1/(X2, ... ). Proof First suppose that all of (Xl' ... ' (X. are nonzero. Then we can introduce the matrix E = diag (1/(X1' 1/(X2, ... ). 4, DE = ED = diag(l, 1, ... , 1) = I. Hence in this case D is nonsingular and D - 1 = E. 2). The whole proposition is now proved. 4 Let A = [: :J be an arbitrary matrix in F 2 x 2.

2 (AA)T = AAT (AEF, AEFmxn). 4 (ABf = BT AT (A,BEFmxn). (AEF/ xm , BEFmxn). Of these, the first three are very easy to prove. 4, which, for obvious reasons, is known as the reversal rule for transposes. Let A = [iXik]/xm, B = [Pik]mxn" Both (ABf and BT A T are matrices oftype n x I. Further, for all relevant i, k, (i,k)th entry ofB TAT = (ith row of BT) x (kth column of AT) = roW(Pli,P2i> ... ,Pmi) x COI(iXkl,iXk2,···,iXkm) m = L j=l m PjiiXkj = L j=l iXkjPji = (k, i)th entry of AB = (i, k)th entry of (AB)T.
